Week 5 Discussion
Simulation in Healthcare:
INFORMATION TO THE SOUTH UNIVERSITY LIBRARY
The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week on the basis of the course competencies covered.
By the due date assigned, post a response to one of the two discussion topics below, using information from the lectures, reading assignments, library resources, and Internet resources. All responses should be posted to the Discussion Area.
To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Simulation technology has been transformative in nursing education. Through the use of simulation, nurses can repeatedly practice skills and gain clinical confidence in a risk-free environment. Simulation, however, is not just for health care professionals. How can nurses leverage simulation technology for patient and family education? Share your experiences and ideas for leveraging simulation technology for patient education.
IT can be a great tool in our caring environment, but it can also be perceived as a hindrance. Recent patient satisfaction surveys have had comments such as â€œthe nurse and the doctor were more interested in the computer than meâ€ and â€œI felt like they were treating the machines not the person connected to them.â€
You read in your textbook about Jean Watson and her Theory of Human Caring. How can we, as nurses, ensure that the patient understands that he or she is at the center of our care and that the technology is an adjunct to it? Share your experiences and ideas to ensure a patient-focused experience in a high-tech environment.
Justify your response from the readings or articles from the South University Online Library.
Citations should conform to APA guidelines. You may use this APA Citation Helper as a convenient reference for properly citing resources or connect to the APA style website through the APA icon web address below.
By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your peers’ responses. You can ask questions or respond generally to the overall experience. Be objective, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of positive progress. All comments should be posted to the Discussion Area.
